Last weekend saw us play the Yule Weekend at Bede’s World for the second year in a row – 2 sets on Sunday afternoon in the wonderful acoustics of the Bede’s Head dome, one of the many beautiful spots in a wonderful museum. The following Sunday saw us playing our annual gig at South Shields Folk Club, at the Customs House, Mill Dam. Despite the broken heating we managed to tame the struggling instruments and fingers and play two great sets with a few new songs and tunes in the mix. The nice thing about playing folk clubs is you never know who else will be on as floor spots, and SSFC threw up some brilliant singers and musicians on Sunday, including the visiting Northumberland fiddlers Rachael Hales & Robin Dunn.
Next up we are off to the Tanner’s Arms in Alnwick on the 17th January to play for Lush Acoustic – can’t wait, as long as it’s not snowing!!!
UPDATE: What a night at The Tanners’. Absolutely fantastic music from Bill Read and friends made for huge fun before we went on at 10.30pm – well past our bedtime but we played for an hour to a packed out pub and enjoyed it immensely. 🙂
